Dilettante Beat….

Hi, I’m Shebatty and I’m obsessed with makeup! It’s a moderately severe obsession that I try to contain as much as possible, for financial reasons specifically.

I was the woman who wore eyeliner and lipstick and swore I was DOIN’ IT. Thanks to my beautiful mother, I have clear skin and I’m not too blotchy either. I’ve always had some type of daily cleansing regimen. My signature daily cleansing system is Mary Kay’s (MK)Timewise .


3 in 1 Cleanser, Microdermabrasion; refine and replinish, night solution, day solution, firming eye cream, age fighting moisturizer, tinted moisturizer

I cleanse my face every morning. But, I must be honest, I’m horrible with my night time routine (especially if I don’t have any eyeshadow on). I’m working at getting my night time routine on track to help in all areas of my life. I’ll have to blog about that some other time… Use this link to see the details on what steps to takes with your MK daily cleansing products. (The products that I have and use have been listed in the photo above.)

Once I apply my MK Tinted Moisturizer I’m finished with that product line (when doing an everyday look, for night looks I apply MK foundation primer). Since I like to have morning affairs with my bed and pillows, most days I’m rushing. A rushed morning translates to -drum roll please.

Fresh Face Day look:

On these days, I fill in my eyebrows, appt eyeliner, mascara, blush, lipstick, and pressed powder. I know it’s dangerous, but as long as my tinted moisturizer is in and I’ve done my brows, I can do all the other steps en route to dropping my daughter off and work.

Days that I actually get up, without snoozing, when my alarm goes off, I Have time to work in a

Mini Beat Day look:


On these days, I fill in my eyebrows, apply eyeshadow, top and bottom eyeliner, mascara, blush, lipstick, and pressed powder. I have to have enough time to do my brows, and shadow before leaving the house on these days, all the other steps en route to the job. Most times if I’ve applied my shadow I’ll do my whole face at home.

I’m married and the mother of a young child. So on the rare occasion that I go out, I like to intensify my looks a little more. That doesn’t mean that I go full-on Hollywood, Photo Shoot beat, but I definitely like for my makeup to pop in some form or fashion.

MUA For a Day look:


Ok ok, this look isn’t really much more than Mini Beat Day 😣. I’m in the process of purchasing products to learn how to do more advanced foundation applications. To include; daily highlighting techniques (something that is applied daily and not too over the top) and, highlights and contouring.

It has only been 5 years since my interest in makeup was piqued. I’ve also been raising a child during that time, I work full time and I’m a wife. So my, interest, time, and attention span are all affected by by those things. None of my looks are much more extensive than the pictures in this post, but stay tuned there is more to come.
